Anybody ridden this combination yet? Im wanting to go back to a
Vanilla from the Talas, and it just seems like the right fork for my 575.

Ive got the 140 float...

Its a beut. i had to adjust the air pressure a little lighter than recomended in order to get proper sag, but she handles great. Very stiff and accurate, very small and large bump compliant. dont feel the littles dont bottom on the bigs=perfect. Get the new fork it is worth it. Best fork I've ever used although the first one over 100mm for me.

P.S. the 575 RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kind of wish I had waited to get the extra 10 mm travel. I really think this bike cries out for the full 5.5 inches of travel. What's the price on the 140?

Dont know how much $$$$$$$$

Mine came with the bike. the sweetness of it all was that when i ordered I assumed the 06' model was what I was getting. when I opened the box, to my delight there was a gleaming 140mm of travel. Truth be told the 10mm isnt the goods. Its the stiffness and compresion damp that makes this fork a must have....BUY IT!!!!!!!!!

I have a Talas now, and after having a Vanilla for a year I cant stand the air on the small bumps. The Vanilla is much plusher, and the extra 10mm makes a differance in balancing the bike better.
